"I have a dream that my children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." -- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

Minority rights – whether ethnic, religious or linguistic minorities – are an integral part of international human rights law. Respect for minority rights provides protection of existence, protection from oppression and discrimination, space to strengthen their identity, and the ability to participate in political life.

Many believe constitutions must endorse minority rights unreservedly and unequivocally, to ensure social, economic and political justice for all citizens. To do so, constitutions must include various doctrines to protect the rights and interests of minorities.

But on the other hand, some may have reservations over the endorsement of those rights in the constitution, arguing that all citizens are equal in the eyes of the law; minorities are a group of ordinary citizens, and there should be no differentiation between their rights and the rights of others.
